5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I had visited the grounds of the Osthoff in June while attending a SUP competition and was pleasantly surprised at the beauty of the resort and couldn't wait to return to stay in July. From the moment I arrived, the service was exceptional. Each employee that I interacted with genuinely seemed happy to work at the Osthoff and many times... More

Great resort, great rooms, great amenities at The Osthoff Resort. Worth the extra cost to have a lakeside view. Live music lakeside on the weekend. Poolside service is a little spotty. They don't seem to have enough staff members. Otherwise, it's five stars all the way.

Spent 4 days at Osthoff with 6 adults and 2 children in a 3- bedroom Woodland Suite Deluxe. It was hard when I booked it to know what it really looked like as they only had floor plans on the website but thank you to the marketing director for sending me photos! The suite was WONDERFUL! One large bedroom downstairs... More

This was the second visit for our large family at the Ostoff. We traveled with 10 adults and 10 children (ages 6 and under). The resort is beautiful and convenient. It's just about 2 hours north of Chicagoland, so an easy road trip for our big group. The setup of 1 and 2 bedroom condos allowed us to flexibly book... More

I stayed here for a wedding. The resort and staff are amazing! The only thing I didn't care for was the food the resort provided for the wedding. It was pretty awful. Everything else is excellent though! Hopefully it was a one time thing.

Rooms were clean with comfortable furnishings. Food and drink were easily accessible and of high quality without the high-end cost. Agents were welcoming and anxious to assist and serve. Activities around the lake are plentiful with a staff that is energetic and accommodating.

We called the Osthoff on a whim, on a busy race weekend, to see if we could possbily get a room for a one nights stay which is typically impossible. To our amazement, we received accomodations to fit a King & Queen at a price we could afford. We only wished we could have shared that with friendsor family who... More

We stayed at the Osthoff Resort a couple of weeks ago for one night. What an amazing hotel, beautiful grounds and convenient location. Check in was at 4pm, but we arrived at 12:30pm and told our room was ready. (By 1 pm, we were relaxing by one of the beautiful outdoor pools with a cocktail) The front desk staff, and... More
